Do You Need a Zoom Meeting or a Zoom Webinar?

Zoom Meetings

Zoom meetings are ideal for hosting interactive sessions with audience participation. Meetings can accommodate up to 300 participants.  University faculty, staff and students have the ability to create and host their own Zoom meetings through the UD Zoom Video Conferencing web portal: go.udayton.edu/zoom

Zoom Webinars

Zoom Webinars are similar to virtual lecture halls or auditoriums and are ideal for large audiences (up to 1,000 attendees). Typically a webinar has one or more speakers and attendees do not interact with one another.

Webinars are coordinated through UDit.  Contact the IT ServiceCenter at (937) 229-3888 or or place an online request.
